Ground heating is mainly divided into electric heating and water heating. More than 90% of the buildings in our country adopt radiant heating with plumbing pipes. If you are a user who pursues warmth and health and has a higher request for household heating, water heating will be a good choice. Because the heating system is open and water is in the pipeline, many users are worried that the heating pipe will scale, so they need to destroy the air to remove the heating pipe system, and then form a certain economic loss. So, will the floor heating pipe scale eventually? This article will explain one by one to help users deal with the floor heating pipe scale problem.
Inner wall lubrication has flexibility: the heating pipe has tension and flexibility, and the inner wall of the heating pipe is very lubricated. There is no way to absorb scale on the inner wall of the pipe. Scale is hard, and the pipe is flexible lubrication, so it can not be scaled, just like the principle of no scaling on the scaling nozzle skin of teeth, scaling can only be scaled on hard objects.
The geothermal water temperature is not high: the geothermal water is constantly in the pipeline, but the water temperature of the geothermal system is about 55 degrees, which is much lower than the high temperature above 90 degrees which is easy to catch scale. Example: The water temperature of our usual electric shower is set at about 85 degrees. One is for safety (it is not easy to burn in a moment) and the other is to avoid scaling (which is usually explained in the product description).
Water is seldom blocked: the system water in the heating pipeline is very small, and the whole system is blocked, so whether the pipeline has anti-oxygen infiltration is the key. If there is oxygen infiltration, bacteria are easy to grow in warm water, and so on. After long-term operation, scaling will occur at the various junctions of the pipeline, which will affect the efficiency of the system operation and increase energy consumption. Therefore, the anti-permeability of the pipeline, whether it is easy to clean and change water are important.
Ground heating has a 50-year service life, although the heating pipe will not scale under normal conditions, but if oxygen infiltration or poor heating water quality and other objective reasons, the heating pipe will still adhere to many impurities to form scale after several years of operation. Shanghai Fushan experts suggest that it is best to find a professional cleaning company to stop cleaning the ground heating after 2-3 years of heating application; of course, users can also. I have purchased professional cleaning fluid for floor heating.
Will the floor heating pipe scale? In general, the floor heating pipe will not scale under normal conditions, but it will not remove the scale phenomenon caused by other external factors. Judging from the reaction situation of many floor heating users in Shanghai Fushan, no one has presented scale problem at present. Users can choose to install a water softener to remove calcium and magnesium ions from the water, reduce water hardness, prevent scale from its origin, and enjoy a warm and healthy life safely.
